He toa a Vicky Rose ki te hunga nō Aotearoa ka panaia atu i Ahitereiria.

Nā ngā panonitanga ki te Ture Manene o Ahitereiria, kua kikī rawa ngā whare mauhere manene i te hunga he puka uru whenua Aotearoa ā rātau, ka mutu, ko te nuinga, he uri Māori.

He raru nui e pā kau ana ki ngā whānau nō Aotearoa puta noa i te Pāpaka nui a Maui.

Ko Vicky Rose, (Ngai Tahu) te kaiwhakahaere i te Nerang Neighbourhood Centre. Hei tāna, "I think the biggest contributing factor to our deportation numbers is the fact that we didn't have to do visa applications and character test."

Hei tā Rose, ia wiki, ka torona ia e te tangata e panaia atu ana.

"Anybody here on a New Zealand passport they are subject to this."

"We get about 25 inquiries a day across our programs and about 50% of them are from Kiwi's."

E 411 ngā tāngata nō Aotearoa i panaia i te tau kua hori, ā nō te tau 2014, kotahi mano ngā tāngata nō Aotearoa i panaia atu i Ahitereiria.

"The stigma around Māori and deportation, the stigma around you are all criminals in deportation. It’s not the case, that's really not the case. It’s a nationality issue anyone on a New Zealand passport and you don't even have to have a criminal conviction just because you might be deemed a threat to Australian society."

Ko te hunga o Aotearoa kaare e tino mārama ana ki tēnei raru nui.

"Many people don't know that that little green card that we fill out on the plane is our visa application."

He tohutohu āna ki ngā whānau e noho ana ki tāwāhi, kia kore ai tēnei raru e pā atu ki a rātou.

"If you're planning on living in Australia permanently then you need to investigate your options for getting permanent residency."

Ko tāna anō, "Get ahead of the game and don't think you are safe just because you don't have a criminal record."

Ka tīmata a Rose ki te whakatū i āna wānanga ake puta noa i te Tai Koura, kia mārama pū ai te hunga manene ki tēnei take.
